Harry Reid: NFL Should Follow NBA’s Lead and Force Redskins to Change Team’s Name

Force.  It’s all the left understands:

Washington-Redskins

Now that the NBA has banned Clippers owner Donald Sterling for life over racist comments, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is hoping the NFL will pressure Redskins owner Daniel Snyder to change the team’s “degrading” name.

Reid, in a Senate floor speech Wednesday afternoon, said the NFL should follow in the path of the NBA and force Snyder to change the name of the team.

“I wonder if they have taken notice of the NBA’s decisive action,”Reid said. “How long will the [NFL] continue to do nothing … as one of its teams bears a name that inflicts so much pain on Native Americans?”

Reid, a Democrat, said his state of Nevada is home to 22 tribal organizations. Reid accused Snyder, who has refused to change the team name, of using tradition as an excuse to keep the Redskins name.

“A tradition of racism is all that name leaves in its wake,” Reid said.

What’s more unbelievable is that this is being discussed on the floor of the Senate.

This is where our government is.  The economy is at the weakest pace since the end of 2012, but let’s worry about a football team’s name.

Let’s talk about anything except the glaring failures of a Democratic led federal government.
